    I wanted to ask. Are all the house going to be changed into dungeon crawls?

    If so this would not make since. Because most people would not have a chance to stockpile a house and build many rooms, set up traps and such.

    Plus some people would only have simple dwellings.

    I would just think that it would be better if (some) of the house were pre-Alpha 17.

    Just something to think about.

    Wow. That sounds great!

    That, however is super-unlikely to happen. Sounds nice in theory but may actually make POI more generic because you have to balance parts to be largely similar.
    It's also a huge effort creating every single POI 3 or 4 times in total.

    What y'all are more likely to get: Mod support to plug in tons of user-prefabs... that hopefully meet similar quality standards.
    Im sure well have collections of quality POIs by modders. The whole game is built to encourage modders input.

    Thats impressive actually -Thanks for the info. Will there be new regular POIs as well or is this Alpha all dungeon style?

    Im a bit sad that we will lose some regular pois because it sounds like a conversion, not new.

    I'm not telling people what to do, I'm saying they don't have to do it.

    Can't have the argument work for ONE thing (skyscraper parkouring) and not another (living underground). It just doesn't work that way.

    For me the skyscrapers are a bit underwhelming because there is only ONE path. Notice the difference to paths in a city, i.e. many paths leading to the same place.

    This isn't noticable in small houses most of the time, but in the skyscrapers I see three disadvantages:

    1) No possibility to get lost. You want to get out? Just go back, you are on a one-way street. Luckily there are a few dead-ends, maybe there should be more. I would prefer real labyrinths, and real labyrinths have lots of dead-ends and loops (to defeat right-hand rule)

    2) Loss of immersion. The longer the funnel, the more you are aware of the artificiality of it.

    3) As long as there are no dead ends you forgot to clear or respawns happening the chance of zombies in your back is pretty minimal. Longer dead-end and especially more loops please.

    So, I just returned from a Russian retirement party...

    Most there were probably smarter than me.
    About a third traveled as much as me.
    Maybe my English was a little better than some.
    But the take away was they agreed that I had a "Infectious Happy" going on.

    So, I will no long reply to anything that might damage my happy... Which is about half the comments. For the sake of international relations... and world peace... God Bless America.

    Not sure. There may be some new ones not designed as dungeons.

    Did a few too many of your open-faced sandwiches land buttered side down when you were a kid? 54 new POIs will be added to the pool. Navezgane will most likely end up converted since its a static world but RandomGen will be random.

    This is a non issue. Like underground living, if you don't like it don't do it.

    Don't Do It!!

    You could just back up the current prefabs folder, and find the ones that get replaced, rename the old version, and then add them back in to the mix. This would be quite easy for Random Gen usage.

    UNLESS, block changes make them incompatible (must take that into account).

    Those are not the same arguments at all so of course you can have it work with one and not the other.
